learned to make these on a farm in Africa. We would make the
batter and fry the crumpets while water was heating for tea. Serve with strawberry jam and cream.
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1. In a
large bowl, use a whisk to stir the flour, wheat germ,
tablespoon wheat germ
teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon baking soda
cup low-fat buttermilk
cup fat-free milk
tablespoons butter, melted
tablespoon Lyle's Golden Syrup
powder, soda and salt.
2. In a small bowl,
whisk egg, buttermilk, milk, butter and
Whisk into flour mixture. You may want to add two
tablespoons flour if batter is not thick enough.
3. Heat a 13-inch
griddle over medium heat until a drop of
sizzles and disappears in a few seconds. Melt a little
and fry tablespoonfuls of batter. Turn when lots of
appear. Both sides should be golden.
Makes 15 to 20 crumpets
